MANILA, Philippines – Members of Aurora graduated from being back-up men to being the artists themselves. Their engaging performances have made them get the fulfillment they thought only reserved for acts they had been played for.
“No matter what I do as part of a showband, no music fans approach me (for an autograph) after a gig. With Aurora, I suddenly felt I’m being appreciated and people begin to think of me as a true artist, not just a guy in black doing his thing at the back,” says Cookie Taylo, the group’s bass player.
This situation is most happening to a band. Sometimes some of the band members played music and approach by the people they already know. But as what Aurora boys stated, this may change and a musician will not be a musician itself but a musician with avid fans.
